  1. The thought process to say something like this has to be one of the most bizarre things ever. What does he owe you or anyone else? The man earned his money by doing his job. He was good enough that he was able to earn millions. At the end of the day he stepped away from a game he didn't love anymore and was able to do it in one piece. Why slight him for that?
  2. You have got to be kidding me. That's not the difference between greatness and a good player. That's arguably the difference between insanity and rationality as a player. Look at what you said here. One man decided to keep playing after four neck surgeries. What did that get him? Did you see Manning in his final season? Did you see how his body basically gave up on him? Why would Andrew Luck subject himself to that? For your entertainment? For a ring? For a game that he hasn't enjoyed as much as he once did? If all players aspired to your ridiculous standard of "greatness", they might not even be able to make it the podium on the day of their retirement.
  3. It really is sad that people think like this. With thoughts like this and the "fans" that were booing him, I am glad he walked away.
  4. Did I blame either side in this? No. Why you're trying to pin this on someone I don't know, but there's no reason to try and blame someone or put someone in a negative light for this.
  5. I think people are missing some context here. He/his agent held out for a better deal, the colts pulled the offer and started planning around him not returning. There's nothing he can do about that. Doesn't make sense for him or his agent try and just wait and see if the Colts will change their mind and decide to give him an offer again. If the Colts moved on, Jerrell has to do the same if he wants to get paid. Saying "We offered him the same deal and he left for the Bears" misses what the situation really was. Colts offered, Freeman and his agent held out, Colts pulled offer and both sides moved on.
  6. Ok then. That gag order was back in 2002, it was breached by Manning and they reached a settlement for that. Gag orders do not last that long (except in really rare cases).
  7. Well if that's the case, we'll let him and everyone else who have allegations against them just opt out of talking about them and act like they never happened.
  8. Doing your job in a professional way to give someone a chance to say their piece on allegations against them is looking "like an *". Got it. Guess Manning shouldn't get to say anything and everyone in the press should have acted like the topic never existed. Everyone put your blinders on.
  9. Just because it's a topic you might not be comfortable with, doesn't mean he shouldn't be able to say his piece on the subject. She did her job and asked a question that gave him a chance to say his piece on the matter. It's not rude, it's not disrespectful and she asked it in a professional manner. He answered and they all moved on from the topic. They all handled it well. "First of all, this is a joyous day and nothing can overtake from this day. I think it is sad that some people don't understand the truth and the facts. I did not do what has been alleged, and I am not interested in re-litigating something that happened when I was 19 years old. Kind of like my daddy used to say when I was in trouble, 'I can't say it any plainer than that.' This is a joyous day. It's a special day. Like Forest Gump said: 'That's all I have to say about that.'"
  10. Here's to hoping he can stay healthy and perform as well as he's shown he can at times.
  11. Glad she asked it, she's right. He needed to address it and I'm glad he at least somewhat took it seriously with his response. At least he didn't blow it off.
  12. What in the world? Good grief man, take a minute to realize what you just said and how horrible that sounds.
  13. You want it left alone? Then don't bring it up. You brought it up so it's here whether you want it to be or not. If you still didn't see it or somehow don't get it, there's plenty of pictures show he actually did "show class in defeat" to Manning. If you want more from him in showing class then that's on you, but don't act like he didn't show class in defeat. You and others really need to drop this "X player would have dove for that fumble" nonsense like you know every thing. Just like every other person on this planet you don't know that. If you want to assume Luck would have and say "Luck probably would have dove for that fumble" then sure by all means go ahead, but don't act like you know for a fact he would have done it. Now he's acting like a child and embarrassing his team? Now we're just reaching for any hot take in sight. I find it humorous with how some have a problem with Cam's attitude and celebrating. Aaron Rodgers discount double check and Tom Brady's cursing and yelling are just a couple of examples you all have seen countless times and yet not a peep from any of you on those celebrations. These guys are human. Them celebrating isn't ruining the game, it isn't ruining someone's kid and it sure as hell isn't hurting any of you. You've seen these guys be brief, snappy and sometimes even rude during a press conference. They're not going to be cold, calculated, emotionless robots. Now you guys are just trying to make me laugh. The morality high horse some are sitting on is comical right now.
  14. What exactly makes you so certain this is the case? Did you go to some alternate universe and see a version of the game where he fumbled and then dove for it? This is some real weird caping up for Manning.
  15. Well since you said so, it must be law now.
  16. We're really comparing Cam Newton to the General of the Confederate Army when it comes to being a leader and showing class...Ok then.
  17. Ok, you got to cape up for Andrew Luck. Congratulations. Now what exactly does that have to do with this press conference and how Cam behaved during it?
  18. You realize how silly this sounds, right? You have a lot of players celebrating when it goes well and when they lose they prefer to have brief post game interviews. If you watch the interview you already hear 3-4 variations of the same question being asked. If he doesn't want to sit through hearing the same question multiple times, leaving after a couple of minutes is pretty fair. You want him to sit there for 30-40 minutes then have reporters ask him different questions and give him a legit reason to stay there.
  19. Cam isn't the first QB or player to leave early from an interview and he's certainly not going to be the last. He answered a couple of questions and left after. Doesn't owe it to them or to us to sit there for 40+ minutes answering variations of the same or similar questions.
  20. Be careful on that high horse. He answered a couple of questions and left early. It's not like he flipped the table and gave people the bird. It's the reporters. Why do people feel like the reporters are owed everything? They're the only ones that if players don't feel like talking to them, then the player it the bad person.
  21. I believe he did. I could care less about him not wanting to answer a ton of questions. Dude showed respect to the team he lost to.
  22. Sure he is, but it's still worth having a D-coordinator to help. You really want to have that much on his shoulders as well as everything else that's expected from a HC?
  23. This right here is a pure, undeniable, 100% fact. Grigson has to be at fault. If it wasn't Grigson's fault it just wouldn't sound right now would it?
